Funny how words work. I knew about both versions, but had all but forgotten everything about the first version. When I read your correction, I thought "Huh, who gave you the orientation that you lost?" then "Well that was very American of me." I was thinking that when you are given an orientation, you are "orientated", but when you are "oriented" it comes from yourself. Just like the self centered, selfish colonialists we are.
I also didn't find the comment about Cuba so funny. Of course, at one time the Boson Bay had a substantial amount of tea that would have been the envy to own. (When it wasn't salted with saltwater.) I don't think the point would have been taken if the tea had been stolen instead.
In the same way, having all the (unsalted) tea in Cuba could make you very rich. Of course you'd have to have plenty of bodyguards if the Cuban government found out who took it. Considering how the word "bomb" spoken aloud in an airport is treated nowadays, maybe I should barricade my doors because of what I said. "Freedom of speech" isn't what it used to be anymore either.
Have there been any studies of a sudden decrease in the size of cabbies brains?
